If You Give a Priest a Pancake

Inspired by the books of Laura Numeroff, we wondered what would happen If You Give a Priest a Pancake. Today is Shrove Tuesday (or Mardi Gras), a day many people eat pancakes to use up the butter and fats in the larder before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. We’re having a pancake party! We’re letting the good time roll! We’re shouting “Alleluia” before we put that word away for forty days. What do you think the clergy at the Chapel of the Cross will do today?

Will It Go Round?

The circle of the church year keeps turning. A year ago, we were looking forward to Shrove Tuesday pancakes and here we are, using up the butter and oil again. (If you’re saving some fats in the larder, no apologies. We’re all looking at our pantries in new and preparatory ways.) But where has Sally the Dog been the past year (asks Boykin). Sally has made very few appearances because she doesn’t like the guitar. Or the piano. Or the drums.

Will It Go Round in Circles is a song by Billy Preston
